Down in Jun -gle Town, the moon shone down with -out a frown;
Soon a shy bab -oon came out to spoon be -neath the moon;
Monk -ey Doo -dle wagged his noo -dle, he was Jun -gle King, She felt flat -tered when he chat -tered, "You're a pret -ty thing,
Big bam -boo room for two, So prom -ise you'll be true."
Down in Jun -gle Town, A hon -ey -moon is com -ing soon;
Then you'll hear a ser -e -nade, To a pret -ty monk -ey maid,
And in Monk -ey Land, The chim -pan -zees sing in the trees,
"She'll be true to Monk -ey -doo -dle doo" Way down in Jun -gle Town.
